Birds - Flowers.
Photographs by Kate Breakey.
Eastland Books, Austin, 2003. 28 pp., 24 color illustrations, 6x6½".
Two separate series—Birds on one side and Flowers on the other—are featured in this beautifully produced accordion-fold artist's book. For several years now, Breakey has been memorializing the small creatures that live and die in our proximity in large format photographs that are vibrantly hand-colored. She has used the same technique with flowers, producing extraordinary results.
